Gaza Buries its Children when Others Start their School Year


On the 16th of September The New Arab news agency reported on the death and burial of 16 year old Suheib Al Salam Kashif who was shot by “Israeli" Soldiers in East of Khan Younis on the 3rd of August. He died after many weeks of suffering from the injuries he received. His death came just days after two other teenage Palestinian boys were shot dead on East of Jabalia in Northern Gaza and another in Khan Younis.


Millions of children across the world start their new academic year with high expectations for success and progress whilst mothers and fathers attend the funerals of their beloved youth who face the daily horror of life under the oppression of the Zionist apartheid entity. For all of the International Laws relevant to the right of children to education and to live free from persecution and violence, none of these rules apply to the lives of the young Muslims living in the refugee camps and the prison conditions that have dominated those in Palestine.

In the hospital where Suheib was treated, doctors have complained that fuel shortages may mean an end to the hospitals functioning at all. A boycott on supplies entering Gaza mean that there can be no assurance that anyone needing medical help can actually get the best service possible to treat them. This is stark contrast to the highest level of expertise and equipment that is always available to the Jewish settlers in the region regardless of their crimes against the Muslim population.

Associated Press reported that hundreds of family members and friends attended the funeral on of 15 year Mustafa Abed Rabbo after a tear gas canister was thrown at him by a Jewish soldier, fatally injuring him.

Mohammed, a 12 year-old friend also from Jabalia refugee camp, said he was with Mustafa when he was hit. How is it that our youngest are on the front lines standing against this criminal entity. Surely the leaders of the Muslim world must be held to account for blocking the armies who should be aiding the believers when they have nothing to defend themselves with except their own Iman and the stones under their feet. Year after year we see only changes in leadership that make promises to the Western governments to secure non-Islamic rule in the region and sell the blood of our women and children in exchange for power and wealth. The International Muslim community who have the ability to speak and take action to expose this great betrayal must never accept to keep silent as these abuses of our brothers and sisters are normalized.

Regardless of double standards political correctness when media outlets punish any comment on the Jewish entity, we should only have loyalty to Allah (swt) in exposing the truth as there is a great reward in doing so and we can never be party to those who commit crimes against the innocent. Allah (swt) expressed this in Surah Al Ahzab verse 70;

(يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَقُولُوا قَوْلًا سَدِيدا)

“O you who believe! Have Taqwa of Allah and speak (always) the truth” [Surah Al-Ahzab 33:70]

All Muslims in the world should be united in their support of all of our youth oppressed by the systems that seek to keep Islamic politics as only a matter for books and theory. We should all seek to make the future of our youth secure and bright under the protection and guidance of the comprehensive system of the Khilafah (Caliphate) that would never tolerate the mass burial of thousands of our young but will allow them to have true success and dignity under a system that does not serve a foreign power but serves truth and justice under the values of Islam as instructed by Allah (swt) only.
